The Kano State Police Command is set to prosecute Fatima Hamza who is being accused of killing her Housemaid.

Daily Trust reports that Khadija Rabiu, who was an indigene of Kwara State, was said to have lost her life as a result of injuries she sustained as her boss beat her to a pulp.

The Police Public Relation Officer in the state, DSP Abdullahi Haruna Kiyawa, said the command had done a thorough investigation on the matter and it has concrete evidence at hand to prosecute the woman.

Kiyawa maintained that their first report indicated that the late Khadija was diagnosed with cat bite in the past.

“In our investigation, we found out that the late Khadija was once bitten by a cat.

“We have the hospital report and the witnesses on that, but on the accusation of beating the late Khadija to death by her boss, there were three witnesses on the issue; the co-housemaid, the security guard and Fatima’s mother.

“Based on our pieces of evidence, we are going to prosecute her in the court of law.

“We have submitted the written document to the state Ministry of Justice for further advice.”
